Bullies Won…Susan Rice withdraws her name for nomination

John McCain is probably crowing with glee. He suceeded at driving Susan Rice out of consideration for the nomination to be Secretary of State. McCain has been nursing his hurt from 2008 like it is still a fresh wound, and his vendetta against Rice was ongoing and unfounded. This was personal, and sadly today McCain and his band of bullies scored a victory at the expense of a qualified black woman. The irony is she had not yet been nominated but she and the president knew her confirmation would be brutal and she did what was best for the administration she stepped aside.
